Quarantine Beard Maintenance
COVID-19. Coronavirus. COVID-19. Coronavirus. COVID-19. Coronavirus.
Those words. Those interchangeable, troubling terms. An unsettling, never-ending chorus, its only seeming purpose to remind one the world has slowed, stopped even. Message received: The virus has infested nearly every aspect of life. Your television programs. Your local supermarkets. Your pastime of American motorcycles. Magazine articles devoted to your pastime of American motorcycles (!). Even online articles devoted to your pastime of American motorcycles (!!). And as you stroke your chin pondering the state of things, you’ll note that it, too, has infested your face.
Chances are good our male readers have a quarantine beard. Much ink has been spilled about the phenomenon. As the name should clue you in, it’s a beard grown while being cooped up because of the virus. This should not be too surprising. Without many opportunities/obligations to go out, more guys are going to stop shaving and grooming regularly. There is nothing wrong with having a beard, of course, and with diminished public appearances, now is not a bad time to experiment with a new look, especially we who do not normally grow our beards out. But don’t misunderstand: Unkempt beards are still not kosher. Few possess the rugged outdoorsman look that a large, messy beard could possibly complement. Everyone else must be diligent in maintaining a well-kept beard with quality shaving and grooming products. Even a big-beard, outdoorsy look is likely better served proper and trimmed.
Sure, your helmet (which you always use, right?*) obscures your face when riding anyway. But when you meet someone face-to-face, don’t you want them to see a dapper man who cares? At the very least, spare relatives the sight of a disheveled pseudo-caveman.
Or, perhaps you feel a beard doesn’t suit you after all, or your facial hair is only a result of a quarantine-induced stupor and want to regularly shave again.
Whatever your situation and feelings on quarantine beards, practically no one wants to see a poorly maintained one. Below you will find some items that will help rid the world of lousy quarantine beards.
